1986 Tests on Channel 502 tomorrow



  • Just a heads up tomorrow all 3 Tests from the 86 Invisibles tour on Fox 502 tomorrow

    For us older blokes it will bring back great memories of watching superstars like Lewis ,Sterling ,Kenny Meninga etc and for the Poms Hanley and Schofield

    For the younger blokes you can appreciate the greatness of these players and how bad the Poms really were :roll

    Tough footy games , no quarter given , some hard men playing some hard games

    Too late for you , you got all that homework to do

    Game 1 starts at 7.00 pm here , so you will only have to wait around 15 years 😃



  • Heap of different games , the 2004 soccer victory over England at Upton Park as well



  • Even better after the last game they have Game 2 from 1990 Ashes series

    The greatest rugby league Test I have ever seen



  • The 86 Team was my favourite to watch… Just started to get serious about footy and watching blokes like Lewis, Miles, Meninga & Lindner stick it to the poms gave me an extra spring in my step.

    Did any NSW Players play back then? 😆

    Invisibles? Never seen them play.

    Sorry could not resist. I believe the '86 squad were “The Unbeatables” anyway, “The Invincibles” already given to '82.

    Miles and Kenny wad the greatest centre partnership i ever saw. Its a shame centres are confined to one side of the field these days.

    Given NSW won the SOO 3-0 that year, I reckon a few played….

    There will never be another test like it imo. You have to watch the first test to really appreciate that game. Benny Elias and Ricky Stuart get recalled for game 2 (in place of a couple of dirty Queenslanders) …… Ricky throws an intercept to almost hand the series to GB - I challenge anyone to not get goosebumps when Ricky makes a break with bugger all time left and puts Mal over.

    I just cried typing this… 😢

    Its probably the first time Happy has seen it… They only just got colour TV out Ipswich way last year. Prior to that, he thought he was cheering on Wests Magpies

    Yeah got my tours mixed up :deadhorse:

    Hope everyone enjoyed the games

    It was funny , I thought to myself when watching Wally take a penalty kick for touch that I couldn’t remember him doing a Benji and not find touch and sure enough he did :roll

    Forgot that Lindner was on 86 tour and old Lee Crooks ex Magpie

    Good memories , well until you remembered how the Magpies went :bawling

    😆 😆 😆 No I don’t think you still see it…

    Who were the INVISIBLE’s…

    The Emus were the invisibles Geo

    We only ever saw them mid week when they lapped Wakefield and the like

    If memory serves we lost a penalty count in a provincial match in France 24-3

    Players got penalized for not getting up playing the ball quickly enough from memory
